The R32 engine is more thirsty than the VR6. That's not to say that it can't achieve decent mpg though. I get 300 miles to a tank regularly in mine and that's doing around 12 miles a day to work and back. On a run to the South West recently I managed to get 360 to a tank not too shabby. I do drive like a vicar though on most occasions but when you do give it some stick then the pick up from low down is fantastic. Got to say that the VR6 sounds so much better than the R32! I do miss that when you reach 4000 rpm and the noise.
